The thief almost got away, but the bouncers were quick tocatch him and gave him a beating.
Embassy Club's part owner Tim Yap said in his text message to PEP Managing Editor Karen Pagsolingan, "We ran after him. Our bouncers were quick to capture the thief as he left the grounds of the club. I was personally there until the thief was brought to the jail at the Taguig City Hall cell. We cannot allow incidents like this to happen in our club that's why we made sure to report it, have him blottered, and detained to teach the thief a lesson."
It was found out that the thief was a male nurse whopretended to be one of the party's guests.
Ruffa says that she wasn't at the party, but was told aboutthe incident.
